This is more of an “I just had to share this amazingness with you” post than it is a step by step recipe, but these brownies ended up being so delicious, I really wanted to share!
Have you tried Snappers by The Milk Shake Company? They’re these turtle style chocolate and caramel treats made with pretzels instead of pecans.
That gives you the best of all worlds since you get the creamy chocolate, the luscious, gooey caramel and the crunch of the sea salted pretzels. They are absolutely addictive, so maybe if you haven’t tried them yet, you might not want to (yeah, right).
These are currently available at most Costcos, which they really should keep in stock forever. Depending on which your local Costco carries, there is a milk chocolate or dark chocolate variety, both of which are amazing. I originally fell in love with the milk chocolate version so I was hesitant about the dark chocolate at first, but they did not disappoint!
Obviously these are addictive all on their own, but I thought they would be delicious in brownies. You can use your favorite brownie recipe or mix and just lightly press the snappers into the batter before popping the pan into the oven. This ended up being the easiest way ever to add three different “toppings” on brownies!
I was fasting when I made these, and it really was testing not to dig into them as soon as they came out of the oven. I always under bake my brownies a bit so they came out fudgey with gooey caramel seeping into the center and the pretzel lattice holding everything together. Fortunately, they were well worth the wait and just the right after dinner treat.
Your favorite Brownie recipe or mix, prepared
12-15 Milk or Dark Snappers
Preheat oven as directed and line your pan with parchment paper.
Prepare the brownies as directed and pour the batter into the pan.
Lightly press desired amount of snappers into the batter just to get it to stick without pushing it in too deep.
Bake as directed (or slightly under, as I did). Allow to cool then cut into desired size pieces. I made mine a bit smaller because these really were very decadent brownies.
